Sestiere is a contemporary interpretation of the ancient mastery of glass art, typical of the island of Murano, Venice. The collection includes four vases crafted thanks to the specific production capacity of this small island and its artisans specialised in all types of glass production.
The combination of the vivid colour of the vase, a mouth-blown glass ball, and the lattice of large contrasting-coloured cords that envelop it, almost harnessing it, lends great graphic impact.
Made in Murano glass, each cord, or ‘morisa’, is applied by hand to the exterior of the vase. The ‘morise’, decorated with ‘rigadin’, the typical striped motif of the lagoon, embrace the curves of Sestiere thanks to the artisan who designs its shapes while the glass is still hot and malleable. Pleasingly imperfect, each cord is different from the others, making every vase that comes out of the furnace a unique piece, a visible and tangible expression of artisan craftsmanship.
